|Family||Ducks and Geese|
A common diving duck of the Old World, the Eurasian counterpart of our Ring-necked Duck. Tufted Ducks wander to North America from both directions, reaching the northeast from Europe and Iceland, reaching Alaska and the Pacific Coast from Asia. Although they are turning up more often, they are still considered rare everywhere except western Alaska.
